Counselling offers a way to help you to understand your life and relationships, and build upon your own resources to find a way through. It is a space where you can safely bring your feelings and difficulties without expectation or judgement.
I am a warm, empathic and thoughtful person, who respects individuals’ needs. The relationship with a therapist can help people to understand what is happening in their life and relationships, and identify resources to move forward.
Counselling is collaborative work, and we can look together at what may be holding you back from getting what you want from your life, and help you move in a way that feels positive for you.
As a member of the BACP I adhere to their ethical framework, engage in frequent CPD training and I have regular one to one and group supervision.
I have worked within the NHS for the past 7 years in primary and secondary mental health services and specialist drug and alcohol services.
I have volunteered in a local charity organisation which offered long term therapy.
